How Big Pharma is Killing Cancer Patients

Abby Martin highlights a new report from the World Health Organization that predicts global cancer rates to rise by 57% over the next 20 years, and calls attention to the battle over generic cancer medicine and the threat posed by pharmaceutical companies who put profits before human need.

    having been in the cancer industry
    working the radiation treament market
    I learned very quickly that it was mostly voodoo
    often doing more harm than good
    but patients can’t obtain a meta perspective
    and most think modern medicine is the only & best option
    and no one treats the “cause” they only treat the effects

      If you look at who voted you up, my spidey sense tells me there’s an ironic character in that bunch.

      • BuzzCoastin

        that was my mom

    • Jin The Ninja

      to be fair to the docs, the cause is petrochemicals, technological radiation and industrial pollutants. hard to cure a person of ‘civilisation…’

        birth is a death sentence.

        • Rhoid Rager

          One could even say that dying is a birth sentence for something else.

            Some day you’ll die and something will steal your carbon.

      • BuzzCoastin

        having known a lot of them
        I don’t think I blame them for the paltry cure rates
        I blame them for perpetrating a hoax
        butt I don’t hate them
        one of my old cancer coc clients
        is coming for a visit next week
        in all fairness
        he never asked me what I thlught about his practice

      • BuzzCoastin

        non sequitur goes here

    • Lookinfor Buford

      Watching my 34 year old buddy and coworker die over the course of 2 years of all kinds of ‘treatment’ makes it highly unlikely that I could ever accept same. So hard to be a simultaneous supporter and doubter.
      I dunno.. I also know survivors.. But watching this ‘industry’ grow.. it just doesn’t seem logical.

      • BuzzCoastin

        most people don’t know that
        wee all have cancer all the time
        but 99.005% of us have functioning immune systems
        that eliminate the cancerous cells 99.005% of the time
        the 0.005% of us who don’t
        are tortured to death by the treament of symptoms

  • Liam_McGonagle

    Nonsense. Pharma isn’t “killing” anyone.

    If people don’t have the $ to play the game, then their parents should have thought about that before having kids.

    None of this “Stop evolution, I want off!” sh*t. No changing rules midstream.

      > “No changing rules midstream.”

      But wait… bailouts! … and QE! … and…

      • Liam_McGonagle

        Yeah, but they’re in charge. Society’s natural leaders. It is their JOB to re-interpret rules in novel, “unexpected” cases.
